Fact Check: Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko Has NOT Died Still Alive

Has the president of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, died? No, that's not true: no reputable source has reported such information. Recently, on May 19, 2023, Aleksandr Lukashenko attended an official meeting with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Nicaragua, Denis Moncada.

The claim appeared in a video (archived here), which was published by TikTok on May 19, 2023.

The text on the video claims:

Lukashenko died.

This is what the post looked like on TikTok at the time of writing:

RIP. Putin poisoned Lukashenko. He has just died.

On May 15, 2023, a Belarusian state news channel published a video of President Lukashenko at what was described as a military command center. It was the president's first public appearance in almost a week, amid rumors and speculation of the leader being seriously ill.

The latest public appearance of Lukashenko, reported by the state media of Belarus, was on Friday, May 19, 2023, when he attended an official meeting with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Nicaragua Denis Moncada.
